Poetry is a Bridge
Poetry is a Bridge is a new space for bilingual poets, translators of poetry from one language to
another, language-swapping rappers, code-switching wordsmiths, and anyone who likes to share and
delight in what our languages can do when we bring two or more of them to the mic.

Featured readers: Danielle Legros Georges, Boston’s Poet Laureate Emeritus, José Zepeda,
President of the UMass Boston Slam Poetry Society, and George Abraham, Kundiman and Watering

other languages.

translations of poetry into English to read. Sign up beforehand at http://bit.ly/PoetryIsABridge.
